IndustriOS Software, Inc., developer of INDUSTRIOS manufacturing and distribution suite, is pleased to announce that Joe Leone, Chief Financial Officer of both Iron Eagle Industries and Shield Fence & Wire Products Inc. selected INDUSTRIOS to address their manufacturing and operations requirements while integrating with Sage Accpac ERP. INDUSTRIOS was the natural choice to manage all aspects of their make-to-order fence manufacturing businesses as recommended by GWA Business Solutions Canada Inc. , an INDUSTRIOS and Sage Accpac Platinum reseller.
Inventory control was a prime focus for both Iron Eagle and Shield Fence. In order to meet short project timelines with make-to-order specifications they needed the flexibility INDUSTRIOS’ material planning offered to manage order-driven inventory, minimum stocked inventory and forecasts. With visibility to actual demand relative to forecasts, INDUSTRIOS will give the planners the ability to adjust their production and purchasing plans accordingly. The planners will also have the tools they need to quickly action requisitions or jobs and easily identify where there are exceptions requiring attention. Another consideration for both companies was having the ability to automate the management and tracking of inventory sent out to subcontractors. INDUSTRIOS’ unique Subcontract Workbench addressed this requirement head on and will quickly bring great control to this area. Advanced analysis tools for managing purchase prices, manufacturing cost and inventory activity along with accurate perpetual inventory round out the tools Iron Eagle and Shield Fence needed to continue to expand their businesses while operating round the clock, spring, summer and fall.
As customer focused organizations, Iron Eagle and Shield Fence will be able to draw on the strengths of INDUSTRIOS to manage their customer communications and production to further improve their customer service. With a centralized area for initiating and tracking all customer and prospective customer communications, coupled with easy access to production information for each customer, staff will have access to up-to-the-minute information when addressing customer questions. Whether they need to enter a new order, check an order’s status, review historical information, or produce performance reporting, it’s all at their disposal. Joe Leone, Chief Financial Officer for Iron Eagle Industries and Shield Fence said, “INDUSTRIOS is very easy to use and flexible so our team will be able to easily streamline our businesses and get better control of our costs. We are anxious to get
started as our busy season has already begun and we can’t wait to reap the benefits of our new system.”
Gail Wilson, President of GWA Business Solutions Canada Inc. said, ”Having worked with the Leone Fence group for the past eight years GWA was pleased to be able to react quickly and source the best solution for them.”
“With two distinct operational divisions, it is important to be able to implement a system that allows both businesses to maintain their own operational rules while leveraging common processes and a common financial reporting system to provide a complete end-to-end solution,” according to Eva DeGasperis, Vice President, IndustriOS Software. “Management overhead will be greatly reduced as they are able to use common technology and systems for both businesses, another plus.”
